This paper provides details on administering a NSF-funded Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) Site grant. The experience was organized with stratified laboratory research teams solving Engineering Grand Challenge-focused problems. Described here are the research questions and outcomes related to the development and impetus behind stratified teams, and how literature from a variety of disciplines suggests diversity of thought and viewpoint are strongly correlated to high function teams. Detailed also are the types of research activities the teams participated in, the content and focus of the professional development activities, and an overview of the developed lesson plans.
